Let’s say you have a lawsuit or an arbitration in Ireland or Northern Ireland and need to obtain evidence in the U.S. How do you do it?
My partner Gene Burd has written an article, recently published on the Young Arbitration Review, on the use of ‘1782’ actions in connection with international arbitrations. 1782 refers to the section of the United States Code that provides a process to obtain evidence in the U.S. for litigation/arbitration outside the U.S. Although Gene’s article focuses on 1782 actions in the arbitration context, the article provides valid insights for litigation. The article can be found here. Feel free to contact Gene (or me) if you have any questions.
